I rem the nurse inserted a catheter when I was in labour, got it removed after. I was afraid to pee for the first 6 hrs aft vaginal delivery.. Nurse came to check on me a few times if I did pee. At the 6th hour, when I had to change pad, nurse brought me to pee. It was really mind over matter. Relaxed, and let it flow.. 😅

I was actually afraid to pee after the nurses removed the catheter, as I had an episiotomy. But no choice, still have to pee cause they need to measure the amount of urine. Just keep drinking plenty of water and you will eventually need to pass.
